The University of the Highlands and Islands


The University of the Highlands and Islands (UHI) is the only university based in the Highlands and Islands of Scotland.

The University provides access to undergraduate and postgraduate study, and research opportunities through a distinctive partnership of 13 colleges and research institutions. Each institution has its own character and contributes to the distinctive organisation that is the University of the Highlands and Islands. Some are relatively large colleges in the urban centres of the region such as Perth, Elgin and Inverness. Others are smaller institutions, including some whose primary focus is on research. All, however, have a student-centred culture and an individual approach to student learning. In addition to the main campuses, UHI also provides educational opportunities through a network of more than 50 learning centres located throughout the Highlands and Islands, Moray and Perthshire.

UHI gained full university status in February 2011, evolving from the higher education institution UHI Millennium Institute.
